    Course Summary

    A BSc in Business Psychology from the University of Greenwich will give you a wide range of skills, but will focus especially on helping you understand the practicalities of business and personnel management on a psychological level.

    You’ll learn how psychology informs us about how workers behave both individually and in groups. You’ll also learn how to perform rigorous research on psychology, business, management and human behaviour more widely.

    The degree program may include an opportunity for a work placement in the field of business psychology. These placements are typically paid, though certain charity organisations offer travel and meal expenses rather than a salary. You will be encouraged to arrange a placement in an organisation doing the kind of work suitable to your long term career goals, and this may be a golden opportunity to begin building a professional contact network long before others in your intake group do so.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
